, must be because i was just so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. bill: take us into the mind frame for a comment like that. white house would come out and argue and i imagine they will government has a purpose and that was the point the president was trying to make. the point you're making this goes back to his days a as community organizer. explain that. >> well, i think in essence when you're a community organizer you're basically dealing with a lot of people disadvantaged you're trying to get them government assistance or welfare checks or whatever and the other part of the story though is that people who are creating jobs are getting up every day and going to work and working very, very hard. this should be a campaign celebrating the american worker. his story in itself is successful story. bill: president obama. >> president obama. i think to certain extent but reflect as mindset. it is the mindset the contrast between what romney and his campaign will be about. we can again become a great leader of the world as we always have been. we can get americans bac
in outsourcing u.s. jobs. >> the obama campaign has already spent nearly $100 million on television commercials, most attacking romney's business record and accusing him of shipping jobs overseas. for "cbs this morning saturday," norah o'donnell, the white house. >> cbs news political director, john dickerson, is with us now. good morning, john. >> truth is, john, it's not unusual for a ceo to take a leave of absence. but it doesn't look very good. how do you think romney is handling this? are people going to understand this tricky situation? >> no. you're right. it looks a little exotic. it looks a little different than people's common experience. what governor romney wanted is his experience at bain to basically have people think he's a business guy, he knows how to fix the economy. that's all you need to know about him. now he's having to explain complicated business arrangements. he's talking about things that just sound different from people's day-to-day experience. it changes that bain story for him. he'd rather get off this topic, keep things focus odd n the and the status of the economy
, thanks for waking up early with us, and joining us, steve doocy is in for dave briggs on vacation and eric bolling for clayton morris on vacation. >> it's a someone that everyone is watching. >> alisyn: we're beginning with new details the death trap inside james holmes' apartment. dozens of sophisticated homemade bombs police say were set up for one reason and one reason alone. >> make no mistakes, okay, this apartment was designed, based on everything i've seen to kill whoever entered, and if you think we're angry, we're sure as hell angry. >> so are we. >> mike tobin joins us from outside the apartment building in aurora, colorado. mike, it's the last couple of hours, people got the all-clear and able to move back into the area. >> it's remarkable. the people that went about their lives, and the quiet guy right above, was spending weeks and months gathering weapons, some by mail and planning the attack and rigging the apartment according to police to kill. inside the apartment, what we know now, at least 30 moment made explosives were rigged up. some of them rigged to kill whoe
of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a
. it required him to use up almost all of his political capital. he prevailed where no president had done before. he was right. he was right. he cut $100 billion from the federal debt over the next 10 years. he provided access to affordable health care to 30 million americans, 8 million black americans who would never have had insurance. [applause] this is a man, this is a president who has the character of his convictions. almost never since he has taken office, during this entire time, has the republican congress reached across the aisle to help. on the recovery act, which kept us from sliding further into depression, only three republican senators and not one house member voted for it. on the affordable care act, no republican in the senate and none in the house on the final vote. but it was not just on the big- signature issues, it was on the easy, obvious things where we got no cooperation. extending the payroll tax, only seven republicans initially voted for it. lilly ledbetter equal pay, three republicans voted for it in the house. when we attempted to raise the debt limit to maintain the
enough for spending this me with us. the most important thing about tonight's event is all of you and everyone watching on c-span. what i hear you both saying is that it's up to us to continue to build a movement, a very ordinary american, that can restructure the process, that can create a new culture, that can create a new space for innovation and make some new demands. and i feel very energized by our dialogue tonight and i can't thank you both enough for being here. we'll see everyone else at the next politics for the people. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> next on c-span3, a senate judiciary subcommittee hearing on racial profiling in the u.s. then female nobel prize winners discuss women's rights and peacemaking. after that, young female activists speak out about efforts to advance women's issues. and later, tea party activist c.l. bryant discusses why he left the democratic party. with congress on break this week, we're featuring american history tv's weekend programs in primetime on c-span3. tonight we look at the legacy of watergate on the 40th anniversary of the bre
with sheila simon, she'll join us live. we'll get you the rest of the morning's top stories, christine romans has that for us. >>> authorities in iowa draining a lake this morning in the search for two missing girls, 8-year-old elizabeth collins and her 10-year-old cousin lyric cook disappeared last friday. their bikes found at the edge of meyers lake in the town of evansdale, it could take three days to drain the lake sufficiently. >>> police trying to track down who shot this video of a smash mob of teenagers hurling merchandise through the aisles of walmart in florida. wjxt visited the home of the 17-year-old student who posted this video. then removed it from his page. there was no response at the door. police citing a possible link to a nearby house party where gunshots were heard that night. >>> we're hearing from the president of penn state, the new president of penn state for first time since the release of the damning freeh report, rodney jackson says the university must take responsibility at all levels for concealing information about jerry sandusky's sexual abuse of children. >> i
case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g
colleague, congressman gutierrez. thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much, chairman durbin, ranking member graham, for inviting me to testify here today. one of the proudest things i am from the state of illinois is being the senior senator in my state. i'm so happy and delighted to be with you here, senator durbin. i've traveled coast to coast to listen to immigrant stories. some of my colleagues have visited their cities that are here with me today. and immigrants everywhere tell me that they are regarded with suspicion. they tell me they are frequently treated differently, because of the way they look, sound, or spell their last name. in alabama, i met 20-year-old marta, a young woman raised in the u.s. one late afternoon while driving, she was pulled over. she was arrested for driving without a license and jailed so her status could be checked. because her u.s. citizen husband was not present, their alabama-born 2-year-old son was taken from the backseat of her car and turned over to state welfare agency. in south carolina, i meet gabino, who has been in the u.s. for nearly 13 y
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their
to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their
opinion. our phone lines are open. you can also join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an email. the question on members' personal health, how much should you know? 202-737-0001 for democrats. 202-737-0002 if you're a republican. you have a line for independents, 202-826-0205. a couple of stories related to this, first from the "chicago sun-times," former representative, now the mayor of chicago, rheaume emanuel, weighing in on all of this, saying don't rush jackson's return to congress. he added his voice, writes the "sun-times" for those representing privacy for an ailment most recently described as a mood disorder, and then poking fun at congress, why should he get back to work, congress does no work. the last time i checked, they had their second repeal of the bill, why rush? the story from the "chicago sun-times." house leaders offering support as jackson jr. treated for a disorder. spoker of the house john baners was asked about it yesterday saying we hope he gets well soon, and frankly, he hopes he gets back soon. the democratic leader in the house is nancy pelos
. i'm gretchen carlson. thank you for sharing part of your day with us today. the president joins the community in mourning to remember 12 lives cut short in the movie massacre. but in the sadness, more stories of heroism. >> she needed to run. stephanie refused to go, instead actually with her other hand called 911 on her cell phone. >> this while several victims continue to fight for their lives. we're live on the scene with the latest information for you. >> in a few hours, the movie massacre suspect due to make his first appearance in court. he might not show up. this as we're finding out about his twisted plan to escape. brian? >> plus, police revealing more about his hollywood-style plot to cause mass mayhem and exactly what was inside his apartment. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> good morning, everyone. thanks for sharing part of your day with us today. you're looking at pictures from a vigil held last night to remember them with song and prayer and with memories. >> thousands showed up at the aurora municipal center even though many of them didn't have a personal
? >> i will say the way i get news is i use my twitter account to get almost all the news i get. for many people, especially young people, that is a cool way to do it. i find because i used my twitter stream -- i set up a specific group of people i follow for breaking news, and it has been built over several years, and it's really large at this point -- the point being i find i am a good 25 minutes ahead of people on breaking news because i am on twitter. i checked but other sources. that is my favorite way to follow news, and it feels the same as the shift when i was in newspapers. i was the only person reading blogs in the newsroom. twitter can serve the same purpose. can be fast and wrong, sorry you need to check. if you are a news junkie, that is my favorite thing. i also love "the wall street journal," fox is. i like to watch my own cliffs. hotair.com, because i work there now. the george mason university economists have their own blogs. a woman who works at newsweek -- i love reading her. aside from news, i like reading more analytical, wonky stuff. everybody done? since we are on c
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american
projects are hurting u.s. strategies. here are the numbers to call to react to the story. host: you confine this online and send this a tweet at -- here's a headline in "the washington post." construction plans are criticized. here is what the piece says. "some projects may prove detrimental. the state department has committed about $1 billion." let's look at the top of the story and see what the report says. host: "the new york times" also looks at this story and says -- host: our first caller is a democrat in columbus, ohio. good morning. caller: good morning, america. i cannot believe we're still spending --so and the money over there. this unemployment for teenagers is the highest since world war ii. it is 7% teenage unemployment. look around the neighborhood and there are abandoned homes -- it is 70% teenage unemployment. the mood of america is something wrong. afghanistan is part of that wrong. we don't have the money to spend over there. have a good week, america. host: it would be expected in a war zone, according to "the new york times." host: is separate power line problem has not
offenses only upon conviction, creating a 24-hour hotline for anyone who believes they are a u.s. citizen or otherwise have been improperly served an immigration detainer, ensuring witnesses and victims of crimes are not inadvertently placed in removal hearings, and developing a strong oversight program in coordination with the department of homeland securitys office of civil rights and civil liberties. with regard to the 287-g program, we have 68 active agreements. that number has not changed much over the years. 40 are in a jail setting. 20 involve task forces. eight involve both. the jail model continues to be the most productive by far, accounting for a little over 9,000 of the 9,500 removals this year. the task force model has proved much less productive. with just 361 removals to date nationwide. we are phasing out most such agreements as a result. for example, of the seven task force agreements we just ended in arizona, six of the seven had resulted in no removals of any kind for the last two years. with regard to overall enforcement, i think we will end the fiscal year with simila
from passengers on a flight from new york to madrid. tom costello covers aviation for us. tom, how are you? >> reporter: good morning. delta flight to madrid, 206 passengers on board. it left new york at 8:00 but soon after turned back to jfk and escorted to a remote location on the runway after a passenger spotted something that looked very suspicious. on the floor of a lavatory, a straw with wires in it. the crew notified on board air marshals and then a female passenger began having difficulty breathing as she pointed out another male passenger she thought was the last person into the lavatory. the male passenger denied going to the rest room or having anything to do with the wires but the air marshals and crew became concerned that the female passenger might be part of a diversion. listen to the pilot talking to the tower when they were on the ramp but before police boarded the plane. >> we have a lady that is on oxygen that the flight attendants want paramedics for, but we think she's the one that is supposed to be the decoy to keep looking at the gentleman that was playing wi
of the things that he hears from his constituents is that they expect us to work together here in washington, in the senate, in congress to get things done for the people of this country. i hear that from my constituents. i'm sure the presiding officer hears that from her constituents. people throughout the country expect us to work together, and they want to see us address the economic challenges that we're facing in the country. well, one of the best ways to address the fiscal issues that we're facing is to be able to grow this economy, and nothing is more important to growing the economy, to creating jobs than small businesses. senator casey talked about the recent report that came out from his congressional committee, talking about the importance of small business. the fact is that over the last decade, businesses are fewer than 250 employees accounted for nearly 80% of all new hires. economists tell us that about two-thirds of the jobs that are going to be needed to get us out of this recession are going to come from small businesses, and in new hampshire, small businesses are particula
service to our capital city. when the new rail franchises are a portion in august, will he use his good office to ensure this government does everything possible to ensure this is connected to our capital city? >> my honorable friend always speaks up. he's right that wendy's franchises are looked at there are opportunities to make the case before investment and for more services, and i'm sure the operation and others will listen to what he said today. >> thank you, mr. speaker. my constituents is recovering from cancer but she has had -- the government consultation on changing this rule, when are we going to suggest is for the 7000 cancer patients in this situation? >> i've looked carefully at this case and i know she has not had a response from the minister about this issue. as she knows there are two types of eesa. one where there's permanent support, and is not means tested, and another weather is means testing after a year. what we're doing is making sure that more people with cancer are getting more help and more treatment and i think that is very important. and i think is absolute
a look. good morning. thursday, july 12th. mitt romney, staring at the naacp convention. with us former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner. the executive editor of bloomberg news, al hunt and rounding out our michael bloomberg hour morning, columnist for bloomberg, margaret carlson. in new york, a man whose company i'm sure will be owned by michael bloomberg, executive editor at random house, "time" magazine contributing editor jon meacham and also editorial writer for "the washington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. jonathan. >> yeah. >> let's start with you. >> hey, joe. >> mitt romney, at the naacp convention. that just sort of -- like those old reesy's ads, two great tastes that go great together. not a natural audience for mitt romney and it didn't go especially well. why did he do it? >> i mean, i would hope he did it because what he says, you know, looking for every vote possible and wanted to show respect to the community and ask for their votes. but you don't go there and say that you are going to be better for the african-american
you did it! >> steve: he is so going to kill us later on today. >> gretchen: i can hardly wait. >> eric: now turn in your man card for having someone videotape you on one knee. right? >> steve: sean, that's great. we've got a surprise for sean in the after the show show. so log right on right now. see you back here tomorrow. bill: nice show, guys. good morning, everybody. 9:00 in new york and a very dangerous game of chicken on capitol hill. with the already very fragile economy hanging in the balancep democrats warning they're ready to take the nation over the so-called fiscal cliff. we're going to lock arms, are we? good morning i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom". martha: trying to picture a game of chicken on capitol hill. bill: chicken on the hill. martha: chicken on a stick. good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. you have democrats warning about looming defense cuts and expiring bush-era tax rates. they say they won't bush if the republicans won't bend. watch this. >> i will absolutely continue this debate into 2013 rather than lock in a long term dea
john barrasso, we'll talk to him about that. he joins us live later this hour. stay tuned. 35 minutes away on that. martha: boy, owl eyes when it comes to the economy today is on one place. that is fed chief ben bernanke. he will testify before congress. that starts in less than an hour. he will talk about the state of the u.s. economy and all of the recent numbers that we've seen point to a slowdown recurring in the u.s. economy. the big question will the fed intervene in any way? they don't have a whole lot of tools left in their tool box. we'll hear from the fed chief. his tone will be a big indication perhaps how the markets go this morning and what the reaction is to that. we're getting another indicator on the u.s. economy. it came out moments ago. labor department reported that consumer prices remain flat last month, held down chiefly by cheaper gas prices. seen them at the pump as they have been up having down over the past month or so. a speech by president obama give the other day stirred a lot of debate in the business community. we want to ask this gentleman about that, fo
and put behind us before any further damage is done to a woman, an american of genuine patriotism and love of country. mr. president, i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: mr. coats: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from in. mr. coats: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that the call of the quorum be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. coats: mr. president, i come to the floor today to comment on a couple of things. one, the dialogue that took place this morning before the majority leader and minority leader relative to how the senate should function -- two different views on this between the two, and they had quite an exchange. i don't know how many people tuned in. i tuned in this morning and then found myself pretty engaged in that. it all stemmed from the fact that the majority leader announced that he was not going to bring any of the appropriations bill to the floor for debate, consideration, amendment, or voting. i'm a member of that appropriations
and then i was out pressing my advantage, using every tax loophole but because i know those better than anything, we are going to change the tax code because i should not be able to get a 15% marginal rate when most americans are at 28 or 33. by the way, even though, yes, i was investing in switzerland and parked money in the bahamas, we need to close those loopholes as well because folks like me shouldn't be able to take advantage of that stuff when most americans cannot. if mitt romney just came out and admitted it and said yeah, i did all of this stuff but because i did it, i am embarrassed about it. it's shameful we have been able to have the system corrupted for the last years and i am going to change it. if he came out that way, my republican friend says and i agree, he would get some credibility because he would be acknowledging the truth and he would say, we need to fix this. instead, he is trying to run away from it and it's not helping him. he is digging a hole deeper and deeper. by the way, speaking of digging a hole deeper, wait until on the other
by the remarks. another sign of tricky issue for them. john? >> ed henry at the white house for us. thanks. senior political analyst brit hume is here with his thought ox the penalty credit. good evening. >> welcome back. >> thank you. >> the fumblin fumbling in the y camp today explaining the governor's position on the supreme court finding that the healthcare fine is a tax is certainly embarrassing. it will be seen that the governor is unable to use the healthcare tissue his advantage. that doesn't mean that the issue will not work to his advantage anyway. that's because romneycare is unpopular as ever and the president owns it. it is his signature achievement and for much of the first two years he set aside all other priorities including the economy to push it through congress. romney meanwhile has pledged to repeal it. despite the healthcare skeleton in his closet. the question is this. will voters who want to get rid of obamacare, vote for obama because they have misgivings about the romney record on the issue? it's like the economy. democrats take comfort from poles that show people
, if i have a pre-existing condition, i'll just live with that. i won't use any 4e8th care funds or do anything about that. >> a lot out there, who wants to go first. >> i can address some of them. if you don't think the health care system is broken, that's certainly a fair opinion to have. i don't think a lot of americans would share that opinion. by broken i don't mine nonfunctioning at all. there's a lot of changes we could make to make it work better. i think a lot of americans think it should be a lot better than it currently is. it does start at $95, but it escalates rapidly within two years it will be $695 or 2 and a half percent your income up to a cap. we can start talking about real money there. that's separate from the new tax on investment income and cadillac plans, all together about $800 billion of taxes. it's not chump change. >> the u.s. health care system is phenomenal in certain regards. it can do enormously beneficial things for people. i'm going to stick with broken for reasons joe says. if you look at particular pieces, it costs too much, but you can look at other
committee are ready to work on this important legislation as well. and they refuse to work with us to help the economy or to prevent a looming tax hike on nearly a million small businesses at the end of the year. instead, they prefer to waste valuable time on a vote they have argued for many years shouldn't take place this close to a presidential election. now that there is a democrat in the white house, they refuse to follow past practice of postponing the consideration of circuit court nominations this late in a presidential election year so the american people can decide who they want to make these important appointments. this practice is known as the leahy-thurmond rule. it's a custom they vigorously defended when there was a republican in the white house. so let's take a look at recent history. in 2004, the unemployment rate was only 5.4%. on our circuit courts, however, back in 2004, there were nine declared judicial emergencies. now, that didn't matter to our democratic colleagues. the senate stopped, stopped circuit court nominations in june of that year, even though we had nine ju
